Aberdeen City Council bosses have signed an agreement for 283 new council homes in Dyce.
First Endeavour LLP is preparing to deliver the housing units at Wellheads Road in Dyce after entering into an agreement with the authority.
The latest tranche of housing comes as part of the ruling administration’s policy of building 2,000 council homes in five years.
Council co-leader Jenny Laing said: “We are delighted to announce that we are partnering with First Endeavour LLP to provide nearly 300 council homes.
“As a council, we are committed to finding innovative ways to deliver both services and new infrastructure.
“That includes working with landowners and developers to provide much-needed local authority housing.”
Fellow co-leader, Douglas Lumsden, said: “Our new-build programme is gathering momentum with a number of projects under way or about to start.
“This isn’t just about building houses – it’s about building communities and opportunities and ensuring that our city continues to prosper in an inclusive way.”
Work on the £30million Wellheads Road development is expected to start this autumn.
A First Endeavour LLP spokesperson said: “We are delighted to be working with Aberdeen City Council to be building much-needed council homes in Dyce.
“These homes will be built to the highest standards to meet the needs of council tenants, including those with a disability.”
Last year, 99 council homes were built at Smithfield, 80 are nearing completion at Manor Walk, 369 are earmarked for the former Summerhill Academy site, and there are plans for more new homes at Tillydrone, Kincorth, Craighill and Greenferns.
